Back in May, a friend posted a note about the 30 Days of Creativity challenge. It’s an annual event designed to encourage and inspire personal creativity every day for each of the thirty days of June–with the added benefit of actually building a habit of creating.
I love a challenge. So I signed up and committed to creating something every day.
Most of my creations have a photographic root. I enjoy photography, and with my iPhone in my pocket, I always have a camera with me. For this challenge, I flexed my creative muscles, creating one haiku, two infographics, two sketches, one hand-lettered note, two videos, and of course, many, many photos.
One outgrowth of this is that I started up a Muir Monday meme that fits nicely with my hiking web site. Each Monday, I’m taking a photo that I took and combining it with words of wisdom from John Muir.
Here’s a collage of all thirty creations in chronological order, or you can view the entire set in all its interactive glory.
I encourage you to take on your own challenge. Flex your creative muscle. Go outside of your comfort zone. You might find it habit-forming.
